Happy Wednesday, Dear Friends! It’s pillow time for Day 3!!!!
Monday, March 14 – Island Batik Intro – be sure to stop by for the giveaway of a free fabric bundle! You will also see what outfit I wore to church yesterday when you visit Island Batik’s blog today. Totally unplanned… I chuckled when I saw the picture!

TODAY!!! Wednesday, March 16 – Pamela Quilts — Pamela gives a batik-y twist to my Flight of Colors pillows. Pam is also a Craftsy Designer, as well as Etsy Shop owner. Do take a moment to check out her offerings!!! And there’s a giveaway of a copy of my book!
Here are the original Flight of Colors pillows made for my Creative New Quilts & Projects from precuts or stash book.
It is a stash-busting quick project if you are one who keeps the leftover triangles after you trim off your blocks when doing the flip-and-sew method. I have amassed hundreds of these triangles myself. And actually, the three pillows you see are made with triangle scraps from my Crossings Quilt! Click here if you missed the blog hop post on my Crossings quilt.
So, I am curious to know if you
hoard keep these trimmed of triangles, like I do…. I always keep the triangle pairs as they are cut (right sides facing each other). That way, I can just pick them up to sew/chain-piece.
For a few chuckles today…. here is a paper Miss Baby wrote for her class a couple of weeks ago. [For the new followers, Miss Baby is the joy of my life. She is currently 7 years old and in first grade.] In case you can’t read from the photo below, “If I were a Pioneer, I would live in a log cabin. If I were a Pioneer, my husband would have an axe. If I were a Pioneer, I would live in the woods. If I were a Pioneer, I would have a garden at the back of the house. If I were a Pioneer, my husband would have an oxen.”
So… I did ask her about why the “oxen” specifically. Her reasoning, “In case we have to move, and we would need oxen to pull the covered wagon.” Oh — right!!!
Stay tuned for the sequel of the Pioneer series — I will share as soon as I find that sequel paper! It’s amazing to me just how many papers Miss Baby brings home from school. Thank you for stopping by – have a great day! AND don’t forget to check out Pamela’s blog to see her batik pillow!
